New York Fashion Week’s Melke SS23 as told by Patricia Ann Parenti

MELKE

This Melke presentation was held in The Sunken Living Room in Spring Studios in NYC during New York Fashion Week on September 13, 2022. Since this presentation was handled by Agentry PR it was listed on the official CFDA Calander and when your listed on that calendar you know you “made it”! I got a chance to actually talk with Emma Gage, the designer because of the intimate setting of The Sunken Living Room.

I loved this presentation so much! These fashions remind me of the Mod era of the late 1960s because it is whimsical, fun with a great use of vivid colors The line is substantiable and gender fluid. Emma’s inspiration for her collection is called “How to act like a man”. It was inspired by the 1966 Czech film Daises which follows the chaotic antics of two women named Marie who seek to embody and break free from the absurdity of gender stereotypes.

Courtesy: Patricia Ann Parenti

The sweaters are hand knit in Brooklyn so you know they are of high quality and won’t pile. What makes this collection special and different is the use of glass corn beads and bone buttons made in Manhattan. Some natural and eco-friendly fabrics used are organic cotton, hemp/silk blend and Tencel. All the clothes are made in NYC. Since this was a presentation, I was able to really get up close to the clothes and turn them inside out. What I noticed is that they are extremely well made.

Her prices range from $65.00 for a tee shirt to $2,000.00 for an embroidered piece.

You can go to WWW.MELKENYC.COM buy the colorful pieces you see in my photos.

Remember, these items for the most part can be worn by any gender.

New York Fashion Week SS23 with Gita Omri as told by Patricia Ann Parenti

GITA OMRI

Gita Omri Spring/Summer 2023 runway show took place September 5, 2022 at a venue called NYFW on Fifth. Gita designs her womenswear collection for sizes 0 – 30. What I liked about the show was the two different size models in the same outfit walking side by side down the runway because it shows you that the same dress looks equaly as good on size 4 as a size 20 model. You can see what I mean in the photos above by professional photographer Elvia Gobbo Photography www.elviagobbo.com.

Courtesy: Elvia Gobbo

Gita’s said “fashion knows no size and size knows no style limits.” This is very true nowadays when the plus size lady wants the same clothes in her size that she sees her size 6 contemporaries wear. This designer doesn’t separate plus size, junior size or missy sizes but makes one collection that is size inclusive and goes from size 0 to size 30. A size chart was given to the attendees by the designer and it explains her sizes because as she says “There is no standardized sizing in the USA.” Since I have worked in the fashion business “forever”, sold many brands at retail and as a personal shopper I agree with her. Her size 0 measurements are bust 32″, waist 25″ hips 34″ and her size 30 measurements are bust 57″, waist 51″, hips 60″. This fashion industry vetern knows she is correct with her size measurements. When you order off her website she will have a size chart with the measurements for every size and the inseam of pants, leggings and sleeves too.

Her collection is pretty, femmine and flatters all figures. She uses high quality fabrics in pretty daisy, squiggle, poppy floral and glass ring prints. I liked her use of bright colors because it makes every size look pretty. The styles she designed are flowing dresses, cutout neckline dresses which brings the eye toward the face, pleated dresses, crop tops, slim pants and godot skirts which are great at hidding large hips because this style doesn’t cling to the body. All and all you can wear her styles for work, special occassions, church or any place you need to look ladylike with a dress or an outfit that fits you perfectly and makes you look the best you can be. With her size chart there is no longer an exuse that the dress you are wearing doesn’t fit correctly. When you buy one of her items, measure yourself and find your size in her size chart you will be assured of the perfect fit and look amazing! Prices $600.00 – $1,200. Now go shop WWW. GITAOMRI.COM

NYMD

This presentation in the morning was all about new and up and coming menswear designers that broke away from the normal idea of men’s fashions. Since this was a presentation, I was able to get up close to the models and see that all the collections used beautiful, high-quality fabrics and all the garments had expert workmanship. It was held on September 9, 2022 at Daylight Studios as part of New York Fashion Week. The show was presented by the brand Nobis and put together by the wonderful team at Agentry PR. www.agentrypr.com

A. POTTS

This designer, Aaron Potts is about being gender neutral with his creations. Skirts and dresses now can be worn by both genders not just people who identify themselves as female anymore. The collection was inspired by angels and lightning. Fabrics used were organza , crinkled linens, chiffon, eyelet and metallics which were once thought of as women wear fabrics but this designer is out to change those traditional rules. The styles are geared towards many different types of body shapes and are easy to get and out of. Sizes XS – XL or 1 -5. For more information go to Instagram @apottscollection

AMIROK

​Designed by Michael Nelson and the Spring/Summer 2023 collection’s theme has influences from South Africa. Hand embroidery on stretchable knitwear is done in India and when I got up close to the clothes, I saw that it was very beautiful. Since the clothes were about Africa some of the components were made in Botswana.  Sized S – XL and priced at $400.00 – $2,000.00 To buy go to www.amirok.com

ATELIER CILLIAN

Designed by Stephen Mikhail.  The theme of the Spring/Summer 2023 collection was inspired by the deserts of Egypt with the colors of the sand, pyramids and landscape there and The Hubris of Howard Carter. The strategy of the collection is the structured suit. This is a timeless and classic collection that can be worn by the hipster in the city or the guy who goes to the country club. I love the use of the gold color in the clothes with the gold jewelry because it makes the suits become alive!  He also does custom made apparel. To purchase go to www.ateliercilian.com

TEDDY VONRANSON

The name of the collection is the same name as the designer. His inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2023 season is Joshua Tree in the California desert. He uses the neutral colors of the desert in muted shades of stone, sand and bone. His tailored collection is made up of light and airy fabrics of linen and silk. The silhouettes are suits with oversized double-breasted jackets, camp shirts, shorts, tant tops and cardigans. For Spring weather, he made suede and leather coats not shown in my photo. This is another collection that is timeless and classic for the everyday guy who doesn’t want to look too edgy. To purchase www.teddyvonranson.com

New York Fashion Week – Official Recap of Sept 12 ATFH Black Tie GALA at LAVO

Courtesyy: ATFH

Manhattan, New York City | Oct 4, 2022

Monday Night in Midtown never felt this exciting – right behind Madison Avenue, home to the Balenciaga and Givenchy stores, is LAVO – one of Manhattan’s trendiest venues known for its coziest and elegant atmosphere, excellent food and prime New York City location. One block away is 745 5th Avenue & Central Park – home to ATF Fashion House NYC, host and organizer of the most anticipated ATFH Black Tie Gala that brought everyone in town.

Courtesyy: ATFH

Arriving all the way from Australia, Africa, Asia, Middle East, Europe, Latin America, Canada and other US States, Brands and Buyers flew to New York City from various parts of the world to promote their business and meet potential growth partners to collaborate with. Like on most early weekdays, one would have expected an Afterwork party vibe, but this was New York Fashion Week – Ladies all dressed up in flashy Haute Couture while gentlemen strangled up in stylish Bow Ties, and of course, LAVO did its thing.

Courtesyy: ATFH

It was quite an event, very different from the usual fashion gatherings we are accustomed to – A Shopping Booth setup within the Reception area, Standing Mannequins spread across the Cafe, Backstage setup opposite the dinner, Dozens of Brands not physically present in New York showcasing their products virtually, an in-person Runway Dinner replacing the usual T Stage and Surprise musical performances throughout the evening.

Courtesyy: ATFH

The ATFH Black Tie Gala was made possible, thanks to the support of sponsors like FASHINZA, a global manufacturing platform that helps fashion brands and retailers simplify their end-to-end operations from Design to Manufacturing. Speaking at the Gala, Jamil Ahmad, Co-founder and Chief Business Officer of FASHINZA explained how the company solves the biggest headaches in Fashion by helping Designers and Retailers locate the best available vendors suitable for their needs through a Sophisticated user friendly software that helps them manage their full A-Z operations from a mobile phone.

Fashion Reverie Talks Expands Network Reach, Adding Roku Network

Courtesy: Fashion Reverie Talks

New York, NY – September 30, 2022

As Fashion Reverie Talks embarks on its 3rd season, they are expanding their exposure footprint to include the Roku Network, on top of their current network roster that includes Apple Podcasts, UBNgo, IHeartRadio, and YouTube. According to Editor-in-Chief and Founder of fashioneverie.com William S. Gooch, “We are always looking to expand and improve on” Fashion Reverie Talks. We are confident that we have a really good show that gives our viewers a more intimate look into the fashion industry. That said, it is our responsibility to continue to improve on our efforts and this expansion to the Roku Network will increase our audience. “

The additional network isn’t the only change afloat at the bi-weekly fashion news/talk show. A new logo is also being announced along with a shift to a snappy, more direct tagline – “Your Front Row Ticket to Fashion,” “The tagline came about during a conversation with our inner team,” said Gooch. “We heard it suggested and our faces lit up, putting a smile on our faces! We knew we had it! It’s a statement of the value prospect our readers enjoy when they come to Fashion Reverie for their fashion fix… hopefully daily!” The addition of a new introductory song was just a natural next step of the gradual branding that Fashion Reverie has been undergoing for the last year.

Like the American Sportswear collections that editorial team covers day in and day out, the branding change is being carried out incrementally to gradually move the aesthetic needle to the new and refreshed. The audience is being introduced to the new branding in strategic, definitive, subtle ways with the result being a new overall, updated aesthetic that speaks to the here and now.

Founding co-hosts Cicily Daniels and Tijana Ibrahimovicare the one constant at the show, aside from the timely, probing content, both co-hosts continue to flavor each episode with a feeling that Executive Producer Gooch describes as “just two fashion- insider girlfriends chatting about what they love!”

The roster of guests continues to expand and elevate as well. Only a few weeks into Season #3, the marquee of guests has already included LA-based red carpet designer Kevan Hall, artist and fashion design legend Rebecca Moses, trailblazing size-inclusive designer Gita Omri, and Halston Creative Director Ken Downing, who is currently preparing his first major collection for the iconic design house and preparing to Co-Chair and emcee his second installment of the Delivering Good Gala on November 2nd.

About Fashion Reverie:

Fashion Reverie was founded in 2012 by noted style expert William S. Gooch. Since its inception, Fashion Reverie has prided itself on providing content that seeks to “take the reader from the front lines to the front row” of fashion. Gooch set about to provide an insider perspective on the fashion industry through daily content centered around everything that is happening in the fashion industry. From in-depth feature stories and stunningly shot, original editorials, to news and reviews from the runway, Fashion Reverie presents the full story behind today’s most relevant brands, trends, and events.
